Persian and Greek Lute

March 8th, 2011

A stunning collaboration between the Iranian Kamancheh player, Ardeshir Kamkar, and the Greek pontic lyra player Mathaios Tsahouridis.

The two instruments are related. From wiki: The kamānche or kamāncha (Persian: کمانچه ) is a Persian bowed string instrument related to the bowed rebab, the historical ancestor of the kamancheh and also to the bowed lira of the Byzantine Empire, ancestor of the European violin family.
